Lichtgrenze

November 2014

Shoot­ing the “Licht­grenze” art install­a­tion in Berlin for Zeit Online was another reminder how much I prefer to work with simple and light weight video gear. I had a Canon 7D DSLR with me all the time but ended up filming almost everything with an iPhone 6. Actu­ally only one short sequence in this video – the first few seconds – was shot with a 7D because I real­ized I needed a wide angle lens to capture the scene without step­ping on a busy street. The rest is iPhone footage with a big portion being shot as time lapse and one slow motion sequence. I would have loved to do more slow motion but the oth­er­wise gor­geous 240 fps mode doesn’t work prop­erly in low light situ­ations (no sur­prise here). Addi­tional low-fancy gear used: A Shoulder­pod S 1 smart­phone rig and a light weight Man­frotto tripod. Edited with FCX, Soundtrack via Premi­um­beat.
